About the author

Doting Wife. Devoted mother. Indie Thriller author!

Originally from South Africa but blessed to now live out my dream in Portugal!
I read my first book when I was four and never stopped. Action/Adventure books laced with conspiracy and crime are my favorite, which is what I enjoy writing as well and am most known for my Alex Hunt Archaeological Thriller series.

Inspiration for my novels come from my keen interest in all things mysterious. From vanished civilizations, ancient relics, and lost treasures to UFO’s, conspiracy theories and bizarre news stories.
As a mother of three sons, I stand little to no chance not to be swept up in classics like Indiana Jones, National Treasure and The Mummy (with the occasional Fortnite Playstation game thrusted in!) My busy boys ensure my days are naturally filled with lots of action and nail biting adventure!

My insatiable lust for my own version of (safe) Adventure regularly propels my family and I to take annual vacations to faraway places all around the world. Besides traveling, I love solving mysteries and hold fast to the idea that Bigfoot is real and Elvis is still alive.

With a passion for people (and a lifetime in the service industry) I’m committed to answer emails and social media messages from my readers personally. Though nowhere near the top of my craft, my stubborn determination will push for success as I continue to grow and deliver books my readers will love!
